Sasja wrote this at the beginning of the year before we had this website and when thinking of a one pot meal to share, this one came to mind. Enjoy!

Its me, Sasja,

Coping with the ice in Chicago, which is perfect weather for the recipe I'm about to share with you. 

We all appreciate grandma's recipes that take time, sometimes days to be juuuust right. These recipes have been passed down through generations, offering not only a dose of heaven in your mouth, but a nostalgic journey through time and space. 

If we could, we'd eat like this often, wouldn't we? But what about the cooking part? Effort? Time?  If you're anything like me, you love to eat without being in the kitchen for any extended period of time...if at all. 

So how does this work for a person who adores food? Welp, you have to get really creative. 

Firstly, accept that flavorful food can actually be healthy AND fast. All the foods reminiscent of grandma's kitchen can be just as hearty and delicious, coupled with what we now know about nutrition. You can have all the bells and whistles without the clogged arteries. 

Everyone loves a good bowl of chili. I get the warm and fuzzies every time I know this dish is about to grace the household. And now, thanks to what Chef Mia taught me, I can make it myself. Insert proud smile here_________. Come with me into the room where all the magic happens, the kitchen. I'll show you how to whip this up in 30 minutes flat.

INGREDIENTS
1 can garbanzo beans
1 can white kidney beans (yes, I just got fancy. Don't be afraid to switch it up)
1 can white northern beans
1 can fire roasted diced tomatoes
1 can green chilis
1 red onion
4 cloves garlic
4 (approx.) cups low sodium vegetable stock
meatless crumbles (for the vegan/vegetarians)
white corn
zucchini
chili powder
cumin
himalayan pink sea salt
topped with avocado and cilantro
season to your liking


Saute onion and garlic in grapeseed oil first, then add all other ingredients thereafter. Cook for approximately 30min on low heat. BAM! For an extra sum' sum', feel free to add blue tortilla chips and cheese (vegan if your name is Mia). 


You're Welcome!
